Dr Stephane Regnier

Assistant Professor

Department: Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering

I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics at Northumbria University (Newcastle upon Tyne). After getting my PhD from the Universite Paris-Sud (Orsay, France), I continued to develop numerical models of magentic fields and their use to understand the physics of the Sun's atmosphere at Montana State University (Bozeman, USA), ESTEC (Noordwijk, The Netherlands), St Andrews University (Scotland), the University of Central Lancashire (Preston, UK).
